Very much my thot when the power finally came on after three weeks. I still had a relatively solid roof over my head. Yard, fences, trees in tatters at the time, but it could have been a lot worse. Downtown was nailed, especially the office towers with floors of blown out windows.

The grandkids have EXCELLENT taste Jeff and I admire their approach. You can't pin it on any one individual. I often forget the sheer obvious, devious brilliance of children's minds. They're only interested in being...kids. Love that.

(I think W.C. Fields once noted that kids are, "sticky or noisy or both."


@TJ: The capsaicin isn't doing squat, though the pain no longer involves the whole leg, just the footie. Perhaps I haven't given it enuf days of regular treatment yet as I understand needs to be done. Home stretch? Back to the hydrocortisone at least temporarily.

@Jeff: Dammit, instead of spending nine bucks for a whole ounce of capsaicin, I could have had a few half pints of Haagen Dazs dark chocolate and felt alot better physically...and emotionally.
